  • Occurrence of drug related dose limiting toxicities throughout the study [ Time Frame: up to 22 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Maximum measured plasma concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: up to 168 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time from dosing to the maximum plasma concentration (tmax) [ Time Frame: up to 168 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the plasma concentration-time curve over the time interval of one week (AUC0-168) [ Time Frame: up to 168 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Area under the plasma concentration-time curve over the time interval of one treatment cycle (AUC0-tz) [ Time Frame: up to 336 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
